“The Marvelous Wonderettes”

AUDITION FORM-click here

No doubt most of us have fond memories of our senior year in high school, with our Senior Prom being one of the many highlights of that year. Nostalgia for that year fuels the happy story of four friends in THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES, a 1999 musical comedy with a book by Roger Bean that has gone on to be presented in countless productions all over the world.

Set at Springfield High School, you better believe that the female population has hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts! This holds especially true for the Wondrettes — four gals with incredible voices who all want to make it big, and by the second act’s 10-year high school reunion, you’ll find out which of them did. Review: THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES Sing Their Way Down Memory LaneThe show, which uses pop songs from the 1950s in Act I and 1960s in Act II as a vehicle to tell its story, pays homage to the high school Songleader squads of the 50s, usually some of the most popular young women on campus. But their true stories as told in the show will open your eyes to their heartache with boyfriends through many best-loved hits of the day including “Lollipop,” “Dream Lover,” “Stupid Cupid,” “Lipstick on Your Collar,” “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me,” “Dream,” “Lucky Lips,” and “Sincerely.” I guarantee you will be singing along with the foursome, remembering back to what each of these songs meant to you personally.

To be determined.
Casting 4 women only, but plenty of room for volunteers to help with costumes, hair, etc.
